Playing with a Micro Torch!


My micro torch came in the other day! I started it up right away!!! I was like a child with a new toy! I totally forgot to figure out how to shut it off! Lol. My hubby sure skedaddled out of the house in a hurry.


This Cross necklace was my first… I had so much fun. I even listed it here on etsy!



I am psyched about how this necklace turned out too. It was everything I was hoping to get from my micro torch! I listed this on on Etsy too!

Well, better get back to soldering!
Have a great day!

Sharing Joy


Sometimes I believe we need to create our own joy and I have to say it sure can be fun!

I found the coolest mica cuttings in Tucson and I was creating with some resin projects the other day and decided to play! This is the first one I made into a necklace and I am happy with the result.


I created about six inspirational message pendants with vintage book paper. I am a glitter girl, so I had to add a little sparkle. The only thing I would change would be to protect the ink a little better on the vintage paper. But overall, I am happy with the results.

Well, my spring fever has been put on the back burner with freezing rain causing a late start for school this morning. My kids slept the entire two hours, it amazed me! What a joyful start to the day!


I hope you are having a fun and joy filled day today!

Fun, Funky, Flower

One week! I cannot believe that I will be leaving for the Tucson Gem Show in one week!

This trip has been on my wish list for years and it is about to become a reality! I am so crazy excited to meet my friend Patti and her friend Liz and to shop till we drop!

I have been compiling my list of supplies needed, going through containers to take stock of my beads.


In the meantime, there is so much to do to prepare & get my ducks in a row at home.

The necklace featured on my blog today has been added to my etsy shop already!! This might be one of my favorites!!


You can shop for it here…


I love it for layering! Long, neutral and funky.

Lovin’ Grungy Crystals


Lovin’ Crystals…


Here is another necklace I created with the amazing soldered crystals from my Atlanta loot.


I wired this crystal with the intention of layering it.


Super happy with the results…


I love the added grunginess of the soldered crystals.

Today is the first day in quite some time that we have almost free… Hangin’ in PJ’s with my family.

Hope your day is FUNtastic!
